VIDEO: Iconic Test moments at The Oval

Inaugurated in 1845, The Oval is an international cricket stadium at Kennington in South London of England. This was the first venue in England to host a Test match, which was played between England and Australia. The home side won the match by five wickets and has been among the most iconic venues in Test cricket.

With England currently playing against Pakistan at The Oval in the fourth and final Test of the series, there are plenty of records and iconic moments about this venue which every cricket fan should know. It was The Oval where England registered it’s highest total in Tests by scoring 903 with the loss of seven wickets against Australia in 1938. Len Hutton was the top-scorer in that game with a tally of 364 runs to his name. It remained the highest individual score in Tests for next 19 years and was later broken by Gary Sobers on February 26, 1958. ALSO READ: 8 iconic Test moments at Old Trafford
